    I used to run into Brandy all the time at Ackee Bamboo in Liemert Park on my lunch hour when I was filming a movie last year. Brandy is real, cool, and humble peeps.

    Amazing!! Love B so much!!

    It is great to see our black excellence being recognized at the highest level. Brandy has a tone that is rich and can not be denied. Her fashion game is the only flaw here other than that she is getting the recognition she has worked hard for, and honestly deserves.

    Brandy needs to get permission from Kierra to sing “He is”! Actually Brandy should never sing that song again…that Kierra is AMAZINGLY GIFTED ??‍♂️

    Well deserved! Artists from Christina Aguilera and Rihanna to Chris Brown and Keyshia Cole have admitted Brandy’s influence on their music. Brandy is Queen!

    I love brandy I wish she would have toured more in the past. Due to her fear of stage fright and not feeling confident in her performance level she rarely toured. She’s still an amazing singer and the R&B vocal bible. Without her there would be no Beyoncé. Proud for all the ground work she has laid for WOC in the music industry. She is a R&B legend. Never Say Never is my favorite album of all time. I wish we could get a follow up to her eleven eleven album

      Yea she admitted that taking that long break after Never Say Never was a mistake. But she’s still doing her thing now and that’s all that matters.

    Brandy, I LOVE you! But, this outfit is not it. It’s very “girl, come over and meet me for coffee I’ve gotta tell you something.” Still waiting for that new music though *plays Two Eleven*
